    A Midwife's Story by Penny Armstrong. Great book. I really enjoyed it. It's about a midwife working with the Lancaster County Amish.

    love that book! A great read!!!

    I also loved "Water Birth" I can't recall who wrote it, but It was a CNM who worked with the guy who help pioneer it.
    Happy reading!

    Baby B by Michael Ryan

    This book chronicles him and his wife going through IVF and a high risk pregnancy. It was an excellant account from a patient's husband point of view.

    Wow! I was just thinking I need a good reference book, and boom, here is this thread.

    I am working in the quality dept of a managed medicaid company, and I do chart reviews. I am not an OB nurse, have always hated it btw, but it seems most of the chartrs I review are related to OB or GYN issues. I struggle to understand the usual procedures, etc...and always call a maternity CM to educate me.

    So, can anyone recommend a good reference book? One that includes procedure care, and routine GYN care?

    Thanks!

    Oh, I almost forgot, may I add one?

    I am soooo glad to see that someone added "Silent Knife". It's a great book. And I also have a few others to recommend:

    Birth Stories (I don't recall the name of the author, little one nursing so I can't get up to look)
    Medications and Mother's Milk (PLease get a copy for all OB floors, if I get one more call from a mother telling me that she needs to "pump and dump" to take a commonly used medication I will pull my hair out):angryfire

    I am so happy to see that everyone else likes The Red Tent too!

    Welcome to allnurses DYMONDGURL. I am in the same situation as you - working to be a L&D nurse, so I have no advice for you on that front. But I think you'll get a better response if you start a new thread with your post, because people are only coming to this thread to make and see book recommendations Good luck to you !!

    This is a great idea!
    A book I have enjoyed is "Labor Pains" by K. Klimo (I Think). It is fiction and not always accurate in OB details, but I enjoyed it.

    can you tell about this book?

    I would add:
    MEDICATIONS AND MOTHER'S MILK(2004) by Thomas Hale Ph.D.
    It would be a great resource to have on hand as mothers are often told to wean(unneccessarily) due to medications.
    I would also suggest Dr. Hale's forums if you have a question about a specific medication.

    I like Tucker's Fetal Monitoring and Assessment, Sessler's Maternity Care, and Blackburn's Maternal, Fetal, & Neonatal Physiology. I also appreciate the more holistic Taking Charge of Your Fertility, by Weschler. However, I am still in search of the perfect set of references as I have many questions about L&D, having worked in a fairly low-risk unit barely over a year. I was at the "largest B&N" also known as the medical book store and I noticed that I was almost compelled to buy the OB-GYN books that the MDs use, because the terminology in these texts is used more often in my unit than phrases such as "potential for anxiety related to pain", etc... Many "nursing" texts do not define "terminal mec", "PUPPS", "therapeutic Mag levels", or "suprapubic pressure". These were terms I had to learn "on the job". I feel most comfortable when I can look something up in a book or in EBM journal articles, but I find that so many of us often follow MD orders without questioning them enough. Just the other day, I was ordered to draw up demerol for a (very new) mother who'd been induced for PIH (with concurrent Mag tx) b/c the doctor needed to manually remove the placenta. Because it was a fairly emergent situation, I did not consult my drug book until afterwards. Now I realize that that could have been a big seizure no-no. I know my experience is off the topic of this thread, but I could really use some suggestions for some good reference books. (I'm going to get software for that for my Palm for lab norms and drug references so I'll always have "values" on hand)

    I love this idea !!
    Now I have a question please.
    I am in the process of registering for the RNC course.
    I intend to do the Inpatient Obstetric Nursing Core Certificate Exam.
    I have just bought the Core Curriculum for Maternal/Newborn Nursing !!
    Was that the wrong or right book to get ???
    Is there a book : Core Curriculum for Inpatient Obstetric Nursing
    I have searched a few websites and have been unsuccessful in finding one.
    If there isn't one specifically for Inpatient Obstetric Nursing will the Maternal/Newborn Nursing one do???
    Has anyone got some answers for me??
    Thanks
